National Healthcare Decisions Day

National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD) exists to inspire, educate, and empower the public and providers about the importance of advance care planning. NHDD is an initiative to encourage patients to express their wishes regarding healthcare and for providers to respect those wishes, whatever they may be.

 

The Conversation Project

The Conversation Project is a public engagement initiative of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement with a goal that is both simple and transformative:

To have every person’s wishes for end-of-life care expressed and respected.

 

Substance Abuse Rehab for Veterans

While other segments of the population might turn to substance abuse for a variety of reasons, veterans often turn to substances like alcohol, tobacco, and prescription drugs when suffering from difficulties like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and homelessness.

The good news is that if you are a veteran who struggles with substance abuse, you can receive a variety of services for free from the VA including help detoxing, treatment in facilities, individual or group therapy, medications, and other services.
